Suffolk artist Bob Rudd was born in 1944 and into quintessential England at a time when Britain were emerging from troubled times. Studying at Bath academy of art between 1969 – 1973, he became a member of the Royal institute of painters in Watercolours in 1995.
Going on to exhibit extensively in Galleries across London and throughout the Uk, including Solo spots in London, Edinburgh and The isles of scilly, Bob has achieved having his works displayed in the new parliament buildings and Westminster, the house of lords and along the way, attaining many prestigious awards.
Bob paints a lot of Scottish landscapes and came to do so by simply being approached by a gallery in the highlands, they say that visitors buy a painting of these surroundings, so it is practically a given to paint the landscapes all around.
There are much easier ways of making a living he says, but no, there has to be more than that for him… It’s all about the seeing. Finding in a landscape something that is interesting without necessarily reproducing it as would a photograph. It’s an assembly of impressions gathered as weather crosses the scene or theatre in paint. Bob’s paintings are recognisable, but they are never reproductions. On the other hand, they are not the result of randomly applied paint either: every mark is deliberate and deliberated upon. He paints as he wants and they sell, how pleasing is that!
Most of his coastal paintings use still water and reflection to evoke the drama of cliffs and headlands, looking for the darks; applying the watercolour in glazes over and over to deepen the shadows and highlight the colour of sky, sea and sand. And then to add in the unexpected: perhaps that solid sweep of purple, that spot of blue glimpsed beyond the sea arch, that electric green of moss.
A quote from Bob……”Paint because you want and need to and not for reward, approval, plaudits, therapy, status or anyone’s pleasure but your own. If, like me, you can make a living from it then that is a pleasing accident.”

‘When I’m painting, I try to capture the spirit of the place and also something of the excitement I felt when I was there. I paint what I feel as well as what I see. But I am creating a painting that has to be independent and exciting itself. I deliberately mix naturalistically rendered with freely interpreted and invented passages to create tension and unpredictability.’
